My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow – Review

My Brest Friend is a brand specialized in maternity and breastfeeding, it has products that facilitate both pregnancy and breastfeeding.

I decided to make this post because My Breast Friend is one of the best brands, and the most recommended by nursing mothers. In my blog, I will always talk about the best products that facilitate breastfeeding so that it is pleasant for both mothers and babies.

Why you should buy a breastfeeding pillow?

In several of my posts, I commented that I used breastfeeding pillows and that they helped me a lot and here I want to explain why.

Most of the time, especially new mothers do not believe that it is necessary to buy a breastfeeding pillow, so let me tell you that for me they constitute a “must have”, mainly in the first days of the puerperium.

If you did not buy one, at the time of breastfeeding your baby, and, your arms hurt, your back, your shoulders, and neck tense, you will regret not having done it. 🙂

They are especially useful in the crisis of growth, when the baby just wants to be stuck to the chest, sometimes for hours (Once I was with Leonardo stuck to the chest for 3 hours).

What are breastfeeding pillows?

They are pillows that were created especially to facilitate breastfeeding, generally have a crescent or U shape, although, this varies according to the brand and model that we buy.

The breastfeeding pillows of My Brest Friend have a circular shape that surrounds the entire waist offering support for the back and for the baby.

How are the breastfeeding pillows of My Brest Friend?

They come in 4 main presentations:

  • The Original My Brest Friend Nursing Pillows.
  • The Deluxe My Brest Friend Nursing Pillows.
  • The inflatable for travel My Brest Friend Nursing Pillows.
  • Pillow for twins My Brest Friend Nursing Pillows.

All of them share certain characteristics such as:

  • They’re Firm, Flat front cushion: Eliminates the gap between you and the baby, and keeps the baby from rolling in or away during breastfeeding.
  • Back Rest: Helps you maintain good posture during feeding to prevent sore backs and necks.
  • Wrap around design: Secures to the body, helping mom and baby maintaining an ideal positioning and latch-on.
  • Arm and elbow rest: Eliminate shoulder stress.
  • Convenient Pocket: For nursing and other accessories.

A message from the manufacturer:

“My Brest Friend nursing pillow is the perfect support pillow for proper
latch-on and breastfeeding in comfort and security. The nursing pillow
was developed in a laboratory of new moms, babies, and breastfeeding
experts who set out to create a nursing pillow whose sole purpose was to
answer all the needs of breastfeeding moms and babies.”

The main difference between the Original and the Deluxe is mainly the cover, the deluxe has more soft covers and besides the buckle it also has velcro. The covers are from Minky fabric.

The original has 100% cotton fabric and you can find a cover which is 100% organic cotton too if you need it.

The pillow comes with one cover but you can purchase more separately.

The inflatable has the same shape as the original but is specially designed for travel in the bus or airplane, you can inflate and deflate any time.

My Brest Friend Twin pillow

 

The twin pillow is one of their star product, actually is one of the best nursing pillows for twins on the market, according to breastfeeding moms who tried several brands.

It brings an incredible support and moms can breastfeed their both children at the same time while they get an arm and back support.
